Schweinsteiger Set To Receive £10m Pay-Off From Manchester United
Bastian Schweinsteiger is set to receive a £10 million pay-off from Manchester United in January.
According to The Sun, the club is so desperate to get the 32-year-old off their books.
The German midfielder made a shocking return at Carrington this week, after Jose Mourinho froze him out since he took over in the summer.
Schweinsteiger has been training alone ever since and is yet to make an appearance this season, as United’s difficult start to the new campaign continues.
He was categorized as a player ‘no longer considered a member of the first-team playing squad’ when United released their fourth quarter financial results last month.
Commenting on the decision to bring him back to the fold, Mourinho said: “The way Bastian was working professionally, every day with the fitness coach, it’s a human decision, a professional decision to bring him back to the team.
“He’ll be in much better condition in case his future decision is to leave the club.”
A move to the Major League Soccer (MLS) in America remains most likely, when their transfer window reopens following the play-offs on December 11.
However, Schweinsteiger, whose contract expires in 2018, is still eligible to play in the Premier League after being named in the squad for domestic games.
